Your Six-Step Guide To Preparing For Graduation


Graduation is a time to get your glad rags on and celebrate the end of a milestone in your life. With the huge build up of excitement, the small but important things can sometimes get missed. Here’s our six-step guide to preparing for your graduation…

1. Get your tickets

Undoubtedly your family and friends will be thrilled to see you graduate and will be a huge part of your celebrations. Don’t forget to book their tickets, since quite often there is limited availability and you wouldn’t want them to miss out.

2. Hire a photographer

Your graduation is a once in a lifetime event (for most, at least), where the memories will be treasured forever. The standard photos of grinning families standing in front of a blue screen no longer seem to cut it and can be very costly when multiple copies are needed. Why not think about hiring a Splento photographer from just £99 for a truly memorable and creative graduation photoshoot?

3. Choose your outfit

Although your outfit will be covered by your robe, for the most part, all is revealed once the formalities are over! So, your outfit will perhaps require some careful attention and a very fun shopping trip with your pals. Why not make some memories whilst selecting your outfit and book a fun fashion shoot with a Splento photographer from just £99?

4. Book your robe

Yep – that big, unflattering black graduation gown and similarly daft looking hat are an essential part of your celebrations. Don’t forget to hire your robe from the recommended supplier for your University or you might not be able to attend your graduation ceremony!

5. Book your flowers

Make your graduation extra special with a bouquet of flowers. Each year, McQueens Flowers – one of the world’s most respected floral design companies – provide bouquets for graduation celebrations across the UK. Each bouquet is an extraordinary work of floral art, hand-tied to order by a talented florist using the freshest seasonal flowers of unrivaled quality. The most photogenic bouquet that will make your celebrations unforgettable and your social media photos eye-catching!

6. Graduation time!

It’s graduation day! You might be cool as a cucumber or perhaps a stomach full of butterflies…but your day has arrived and it’s time to shine! Get up, put on your outfit, slip into the robe and get to your graduation on time! After the ceremony, meet your Splento photographer and pick up your beautiful bouquet for your celebratory photoshoot with pictures that will last a lifetime!

However you choose to celebrate, we wish you congratulations on your graduation and all the best for the future.
